This author has yet to disappoint me. This book did start off a little a slow (or it could have been that I started it and then got sick and didn't read for several days and picked it back up again). I did pretty much devour it yesterday though. I love this author and I love a good WWII story, so it was a win-win for me. I don't think you will be disappointed if you read it. FYI - For some reason, I can never find her books at B&N, I always order hers off of Amazon.
Summary from amazon.com:
Italy, 1943—Germany occupies much of the country, placing the Jewish population in grave danger during World War II.
As children, Eva Rosselli and Angelo Bianco were raised like family but divided by circumstance and religion. As the years go by, the two find themselves falling in love. But the church calls to Angelo and, despite his deep feelings for Eva, he chooses the priesthood.
Now, more than a decade later, Angelo is a Catholic priest and Eva is a woman with nowhere to turn. With the Gestapo closing in, Angelo hides Eva within the walls of a convent, where Eva discovers she is just one of many Jews being sheltered by the Catholic Church.
But Eva can’t quietly hide, waiting for deliverance, while Angelo risks everything to keep her safe. With the world at war and so many in need, Angelo and Eva face trial after trial, choice after agonizing choice, until fate and fortune finally collide, leaving them with the most difficult decision of all.
